Négrette is a black variety, primarily farmed and produced in Fronton AOC (South-West France) and Fiefs Vendéens AOC (coastal area of the Loire Valley). Outside of these regions, this grape is relegated to a few blocks in San Benito County, CA. According to legend, the Knights Templar brought this variety to France's Gaillac from Cyprus, following the Fall of Rome. More likely, it arrived from Spain to South West France in the Middle Ages. Grapes grow in tight clusters, and typically produce low tannin, low acid wines.
